Assessment of embodied energy and carbon emission of building and construction processes in Malaysia using process-based hybrid analysis
MetadataShow full item record
The paper presents the ongoing research which aims to develop a life cycle energy assessment (LCEA) methodology for systematic estimation of embodied energy (EE) and carbon emission (CE) in building and construction processes in Malaysia. On top of that, this will include environmental and economic aspects of EE and CE, which involves of "carbon-added" and "value-added" at each stage of the supply chain. The paper purpose the methodology to identify and quantify the EE and CE in the construction in Malaysia. The methodology includes calculating environmental and economic impacts of life cycle carbon inventories, incorporating "carbon added" and "value-added" along the whole supply chains, accounting for the background economy in which activities are embedded. A particular novelty of this research is that it develops an integrated methodology and a set of tools that will systematically assess of environmental and economic implications at each stage of the supply chain.
